It’s not often that Ronnie O’Sullivan is not the favorite, but the underdog. This is the role that the six-time world champion will play in the upcoming Grand Prix final.
Both players are highly ranked (3-4th position), both are titled (37 rating victories for O’Sullivan and 21 for Robertson), both are in great shape. Account of personal meetings 17: 9 in favor of Ronnie. Why isn’t he the favorite among the bookmakers?
Ronnie hasn’t won a tournament since May 2020. Since March of this year, he has been defeated in meetings with players from the top 16. The only exception was Stuart Bingham.
In terms of playing in the tournament, Neil makes a more favorable impression. He plays consistently well, while O’Sullivan sometimes slows down a couple of frames.
In short, I support the bookmakers ‘estimates of the finalists’ odds.
In the current tournament, Ronnie has two centuri and Neal has three. I think that we will not be able to see more than three hundred in the final.
This is the final snooker forecast of the year. I wish everyone a good holiday, and in the new year I wish first of all health, success and joy!
